Exam English, Academic English, and Business English from a teacher with 15 years' experience!

EXAM ENGLISH.

I mostly teach SAT, IELTS, and TOEFL preparation. My SAT students have achieved 350-point increases, IELTS students 3-point increases, and TOEFL students 30-point increases in their scores; with SAT students earning 1550, IELTS students 9s, and TOEFL students 110. With students who express need, I also help with their university application essays.

Even if you are scoring low right now, if you put in the effort and give yourself time to improve, there is no reason why you shouldn't get a stellar score and into your dream university. You only need the right guidance and to study. Call now and I'll tell you how.


ACADEMIC ENGLISH

Who?
For true intermediate students and above. Academic English classes are for those with general English skills who underperform in academic settings.

What?
Students learn various academic techniques that would bring your grades to a B+ minimum.

Academic English students get a personalized study program tailored to the student's specific needs with class materials directly related to your courses. Not only do you master English skills such as writing essays, analytic reading, and skim reading; you also acquire a host of invaluable study skills such as time management, listening and note-taking *the right way*. (Did you know that with the right method of note-taking, you don't have to study that much during exam week? Great, right? :)

In addition to all of these, Academic English students also get personalized General English lessons where we fill in the gaps in your grammar, vocabulary, and functions.

Excellent experience !
MY EXPERIENCE: * Although I have taught all the English tests you can think of (and just as many you can't think of-- YGS, anyone? How about OTV? :D); my experience in SAT, IELTS, and TOEFL preparation is truly vast. * In one language school, I worked as the School TOEFL expert for 2.5 years. In another language school, I worked as a School IELTS expert for 3 years 💪. * I have almost 4 years of remote education experience! CONCRETE RESULTS, CONCRETE SUCCESS * Your scores with start to improve *on the first lesson* * My SAT students have achieved 350-point increases, IELTS students 3-point increases, and TOEFL students 30-point increases in their scores; with SAT students earning 1550, IELTS students 9s, and TOEFL students 110s. SPEAKING FROM EXPERIENCE "Even if you are scoring low right now, if you put in the effort and give yourself time to improve, there is no reason why you shouldn't get a stellar score and into your dream university. You only need the right guidance and to study. It really is doable; I'll tell you how." WHAT MORE DO YOU GET WHEN YOU WORK WITH ME * My specific tried-and-true strategies will become second nature to you and you will be able to apply them to other important exams in the future * Hundreds of pages (per exam!) of *original* material I have developed over many many years, on top of all the best material out there and past and mock exams PLUS: * In addition to all the greatness above, all of my students benefit from my counseling and tutoring when they are preparing their applications for undergraduate/ graduate programs. From writing a CV to writing an application essay, you can learn anything you need! WANT TO TAKE CLASSES WITH YOUR BESTIES? Exam Preparation classes work best 1-on-1 or in very small groups. We can do classes with as many students as you want, but I recommend 3 students at most for Exam Preparation classes. *Please always check my availability directly with me. The chart might be outdated.

Start Up Business Coaching, Advisor and Mentorship
Becoming an entrepreneur is a significant step in personal and professional leadership. It requires a lot of courage to take this leap, as it means leaving behind the safety net that comes with working in an established organization and taking on all responsibility for your own business. But if you’re willing to take risks, there are numerous opportunities available through entrepreneurship – financial freedom, creative control over your work and more! The first step towards becoming an entrepreneur is understanding what kind of business you want to start up. This involves doing research into potential markets or customer needs that can be met by launching a product or service. Once you have identified these areas then it’s time to develop a strategy for success– creating a lean start-up plan which outlines how resources will be allocated in order to reach goals efficiently and quickly; writing out key objectives; researching competitors; building relationships with suppliers etc… By keeping things simple at this stage (KISS method) entrepreneurs can ensure they don't get bogged down by too much detail before their idea has been tested out properly - instead focus on just doing! Finally once everything else has been taken care off its time for marketing - finding customers who need/want what's being offered so money starts coming back into the business from sales made. There are many ways entrepreneurs can go about attracting customers such as advertising online/offline, attending events related their industry or running promotions but whatever route is chosen must align with overall brand values & mission statement set forth initially when starting up company . Doing this right should result in steady growth over time allowing individual entrepreneur achieve personal and professional leadership heights never thought possible before ! How can I help you? Discuss your new business idea, get advise or mentorship.

TESOL cetified teacher offers conversational courses as well as a continued work on listening, reading, speaking, and comprehension skills.
During my studies in General Linguistics and Spanish, I did a lot of research on L1 and L2 language acquisition and found out that self-paced learning with the full immersion approach leads to more engaged and successful progress in an online classroom. An honest conversation about goals, dreams, or personal achievements can expand the objectives of each lesson and further boosts students’ confidence. I learned about the immersion approach during my first job at the school here in Belgrade, where I taught and mentored groups of students with special needs who needed specifically tailored classes in which they would make a more relatable connection to the language in order to conquer it. That was one of the most meaningful and joyful years of my life. During my work at BetaKid, my enthusiasm was shared by hundreds of students who have remained loyal to me to this day. I want to be a valuable resource for students. I prefer to discuss many different topics and carefully integrate them into previously introduced contexts. That way we can target the vocabulary or grammar of the day so that students can make connections and expand their opinions as well as their knowledge. In my teaching, I always strive to make my students feel heard and understood. On the whole, I have an incredible passion for my profession and would love to share my enthusiasm with learners on this platform! I hope to hear from you soon!

First, they will learn and think about how and why saving money: - short-term and long-term goals they can save for (e.g. a toy, a trip, college education). - how to create a budget and track their spending. - Compound interest and the impact of starting to save early. How to spend money wisely: - difference between needs and wants. - how to compare prices and make informed purchasing decisions. - learn what is impulse buying and method to take the time to think before spending. How to managing money: - Keeping track of spending and creating a budget - Different types of bank accounts, type of money and currencies - learn what are credits, how they work and how it can impact their finances in the future. This class is made for kids, so it'll include use games, puzzles, and interactive activities to help them understand the concepts while having fun.

English Conversation - Learn to speak fluent English with a neutral accent
Learn basic English grammar, tenses, and vocabulary to become fluent in everyday conversation with a neutral accent. I will provide several real-life scenarios and encourage students to hold hesitation-free conversations with a pleasant accent. Regardless of the many languages, one is fortunate to be fluent in, English takes its place as one of the world’s predominant forms of communication with its influences extending over as many as +2 billion people globally. Where it all started Many of you will be forgiven for thinking that studying an English Language course consists of English grammar more than anything else. While English grammar does play a part when taking courses to improve English overall, it is but a small part of the overall curriculum where one becomes immersed in a history that was partly influenced by myths, battles, and legends on one hand, and the everyday workings of its various social class on the other. According to the Encyclopedia Britannica, the English language itself really took off with the invasion of Britain during the 5th century. Three Germanic tribes, the Jutes, Saxons and Angles were seeking new lands to conquer and crossed over from the North Sea. It must be noted that the English language we know and study through various English language courses today had yet to be created as the inhabitants of Britain spoke various dialects of the Celtic language.
